American telecom provider Dish is repositioning its 5G network to the world’s number one Amazon cloud.
Dish’s first local computer network will be established in the third quarter of this year Live in las vegas. That will be the cloud-based 5G Open Radio Access Network (O-RAN). RAN represents a development among manufacturers, and these manufacturers must reduce supplier lock-in by using more open standards.
Dish, which was originally a satellite company, mainly uses AWS Local area on Outpost. Specifically, this means that AWS cloud servers will be delivered to telecom providers on site. For 5G, the cloud is now larger than 4G networks. The biggest user of the new generation of data networks is not people, but machines. A fast network centered on the Internet of Things will generate and transmit large amounts of data, and data owners will bring it to the cloud for processing as soon as possible.
For current 4G products, 5G builders use the T-Mobile network.
According to the Financial Times Also Google and Microsoft allocate on the fly.
